Cyrus Webb Reveals Conversations' Top 50 Non-Fiction Titles of 2013

Conversations Book Club President Cyrus Webb is always looking for ways to inspire those that he meets, and when he reads a book that fits that bill he can't wait to share it. For this years top non-fiction reads, however, he ran into a wonderful problem: too many books to name!

"This has been one of the greatest years for books," Webb, 38, says.  "I've been a reader all my life, and this year I saw authors sharing themselves and telling stories in a way that I know is going to inspire others around the world."

For the Top 50 Non-Fiction titles Webb relied on his love of powerful biographies and autobiographies as well as books that were powerful motivating tools. It is his hope they will become fan favorites for readers and spark conversations wherever they go.
